I agree there is a beauty to the rituals of the Catholic Church. But they are not from God. ANY church that teaches there are more ways to Heaven than through accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ (ie' advocating prayers to Mary who they blasphemely call the "mother of God") is false teaching.
The church I grew up in was to me more beautiful in it's simplicity than all the ritualism and rote prayer of the RC church. But I am not saying RC's will not attain Heaven - if they have accepted salvation through Jesus Christ then as far as I'm concerned they are saved.
